. this according to the new data of the 20 biggest cities in the country. home prices have gone up 6% in the first 7 months of 2012. that's the good news. bad news is that sales of new homes are down from last month. real estate attorney and author joins me now to sort it out for us. sherry, are we seeing the sustainable trend of home prices moving up? are we seeing the trends move in the right direction? >> tom, there's no question that several months behind us now called a sustainable trend, whether it's the numbers are going up or not, 1.5% annual appreciation is not what we would historically call a healthy housing market but better than nothing. to really see some sustainable upward mobility here we have to do something about wages because average americans still can't afford to continue buying more expensive homes. >> explain why are the reasons existing to see the sales go down. >> well, that's a market specific situation but for the most part it's with the inventory. there's a scarcity of inventory at this point in part because so many homes are still backlogged in the foreclosure and defa
, if he can hold a city just% among college white women, he is at 50, romney has to win two-thirds of all other white to win today nation majority. he can to the. republicans were in that ballpark in 2010. they were in the neighborhood. but to give you a sense, two-thirds among those other three quadrants is what reagan won in 84 during the most decisive landslide in modern times. so that is a key total. i will end with two quick points. one for each party. better is a not entirely comforting message for democrats here as well. the general trend isn't like them to win a majority with a smaller number of whites than they used to be but they're also winning a smaller number of whites. .. >> eisenhower, '52, romney could come in right in that range and lose. and, you know, i mean, i think that is bound to -- it should precipitate a conversation in the party. one romney adviser said to me, this is the last time anyone will try to do this, by which they meant assemble a national minority on the back of white votes. every serious thinker realizes it's unrealistic, but the existing coalition is
to live above the poverty level, is not an inner city situation alone. it creates a larger notion of another america out there that's much more diverse and much more realistic, i think. your thoughts, john. >> chris, i agree with that. i will also say there's nothing more powerful than a negative ad that uses nothing but the words from the person who -- out of the mouth of the person who the ad is attacking. you know, you think about the way that tina fey set up sarah palin on niv four years ago by literally saying the things that she said in an interview with katie couric. those were her words. you didn't have to write a script. in this same case the 47% thing i think is devastating. and mark talked about the people -- we talk to people all the time who are doing focus groups on the republican side and democratic side. this is cutting with voters. voters think there's something that's toxic here and there's a reason why this is the third ad the obama campaign has put up on this 47% thing. they're putting up those ads because they're working and this ad in particular i think becau
at the politics of a city like los angeles, identity is strong. it is a localized phenomenon. stagnation will further deepen those things. one in the difficulties is that republicans really need upward mobility in order to make this and move away from the idea that it is a single issue consistency. another thing about taxes that i mentioned is that this is why i keep thinking about this. i take your point about primaries. tax is a pretty big issue. if you're looking for a candidate who does well, very big constituency. romney is not strongly over performing. you think a tax cut message might resonate. the politics have changed considerably. there are many conservative folks who have talked about the idea and some of calling for marginal tax cuts, why don't you call for a dramatic expansion of the child-care tax credit th. >> some say it barack obama represented the gary hart vote as well as jesse jackson. will you ever have a republican primary candidate who can unite those sensibilities as well? the problem that mitt romney faces is that initially he had a plan that was less have the ca
